Long Island Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mark Epstein offers VASER® Liposuction, Restoring Body Confidence

Dr. Epstein offers VASER® Liposuction as an effective alternative to traditional liposuction

Online PR News – 21-October-2013 – 10/18/2013, Stony Brook, NY – Stony Brook, NY Traditional liposuction is an extremely common procedure that helps remove excess body fat, and shape the body. However, the surgical techniques of traditional liposuction surgery are often extremely invasive. VASER® Liposuction is an effective, less-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction surgery.

Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Epstein offers his patients VASER® Liposuction at his practice, and has a great deal of expertise in the procedure. "VASER® Liposuction is an advanced contouring procedure which uses ultrasound technology to gently and selectively remove unwanted body fat," Dr. Epstein says, "The advanced technology used in this procedure differentiates targeted fat from other tissues, such as nerves, and blood vessels. This type of technology also leaves patients with smoother results, and stimulates a faster healing process."

VASER® Liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia, in either a hospital or doctor's office. When beginning treatment, Dr. Epstein first fills the area targeted for treatment with a saline solution. The solution numbs the site, and shrinks blood vessels, minimizing bruising and blood loss. The solution also makes it easier for the VASER's ultrasound energy to break up existing fatty tissue. Next, a small surgical instrument transmits sound energy to liquefy fat on contact, while preserving surrounding tissues. The fat is then removed through a gentle suction process, minimizing any trauma to surrounding blood vessels.

"VASER® Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body, although it is most commonly used to treat issues such as love handles, as well as problem areas on the buttocks, the back, arms, or thighs," Dr. Epstein says, "It is effective for both male and female patients. Most patients will see first see results immediately after the procedure, with the final results completely visible in about 3 to 6 months. The results of the procedure can be easily maintained with a proper diet and exercise plan."

Dr. Epstein adds that not everyone is a candidate for VASER® Liposuction. "This is not a weight-loss procedure," he explains, "This is a procedure designed for otherwise healthy people who have areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. If you are frustrated by the appearance of stubborn fat deposits on your body and would like a fast, low-pain alternative to liposuction, VASER® Liposuction could be just what you're looking for.
